I don't think you can do this as in Hotmail. According to Windows Live you can get notification of how many e-mails you have received since your last visit by pinning outlook.com to your taskbar. To do this you need to log in and then drag the icon to the left of the url address down to your taskbar.

If you run Windows Live Mail then that gives notification of new mail.

Messenger also used to notify of new mail but that's going next month. Horrible Skype is taking over.
